Michael Jackson

Nose
Sea air. Seaweed. Oak, rope, leather.
Palate
Malty, toffeeish, sweet, fruity. Barbecue wood. Mustard. Salt.
Finish
Distinctly sappy, smoky and very warming.
Comment
Rich and creamy, with huge flavour development.

Jim Murray

Nose
The peat courses through the aroma, in perfect balance and harmony with the oily malt.
Palate
The malt is soft at first but then, the peatiness gathers pace and intensity until it positively glows.
Finish
The oak Bourbon-malt-peat-cocoa characters all ebb and flow but is joined by a late fruity ripeness and a sprinkling of peppers.
Comment
This is the finest whisky I have ever tasted. As close to perfection as makes no difference.
